Hungry? Ready for a picnic? Having company for Mother’s Day? Treat yourself! Saturday, May 6, at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church is the 46th annual Chicken and Brisket BBQ.

This year delicious smoked brisket will be available to purchase in addition to the chickens and sausage, (all lovingly smoked on the St. Mark’s BBQ pits), as well as all the trimmings (coleslaw, beans & cobbler).

Plan ahead and order early (especially the brisket–it goes fast) or just come by on Saturday the 6th and satisfy your hunger. A downloadable order form is available (or you can pick up an order form at the church).

Drop your completed order form and payment at the church office and we’ll have your order ready to pick up between 10:30 and 2:00 Saturday the 6th.

Prices are: Half chicken @ $3.75 each, Sausage @ $1.00 per 1/4 lb. link, Brisket $8.00 per lb. (in 1/4 lb. increments) The BBQ coincides with the St. Mark’s Day School carnival, so it will be a busy and fun-filled day!


Music in the Park for the Arts will be held at Barton Hills Elementary Park, 2108 Barton Hills Drive on Sunday, April 9 from noon until 8 pm.

This benefit concert will raise funds for the Art, Music and Physical Education programs at Barton Hills Elementary. Funding for these areas has been cut by over 25% in the past three years.

and more…

Plus, local Food, Arts and Crafts Vendors

This will be a fun day for the whole family.

The Austin school board has voted unanimously to name a new school opening this fall in South Austin for Barton Hills resident and long-time community volunteer Nan Clayton.

Nan helped found Barton Hills Neighborhood Association and also served as a trustee on the AISD school board. She’s currently actively involved in our neighborhood planning process and continues to be engaged in education issues. What a great, lasting legacy!

Congratulations, Nan!

From the AISD Press Release:

Austin School Trustees have honored five outstanding Austin citizens, bestowing these names on new schools opening in 2006 and 2007 as part of the 2004 Apple At Work Bond Program:

Nan Clayton Elementary School, located at 7525 La Crosse Avenue. This campus will also open in August 2006. Ms. Clayton served on the AISD Board of Trustees from 1978-92, was the longest-serving Board Member, and only the second woman elected to the Board. She is active in a variety of local and state organizations dedicated to education, civic involvement, and quality of life issues.
